After the success of the first gorgeous entry into HBO Max‘s Adventure Time: Distant Lands series, we’ve been eagerly awaiting the next chapter. Now thanks to the Comic-Con@Home panel from Cartoon Network we know more about what’s coming next: Adventure Time: Distant Lands Obsidian. And we couldn’t be more excited!
One of the breakout relationships from Adventure Time was the love between Princess Bubblegum and Marceline the Vampire Queen. Though the beloved show didn’t canonize the couple until the finale, this new hour-long special will explore the pair’s life and love. And during the panel, the voice of Marceline, Olivia Olson, shared her thoughts on the history between the pair and how the new episode will explore what comes after that iconic kiss.
As reported by Polygon, Olson spoke about the challenges Marceline will face when the pair returns. “I think a big arc for her in Obsidian is getting over some of the barriers she’s put up for herself,” Olson said. “Her story started way before the Finn and Jake timeline of things. She’s gone through lifetimes of ups and downs with different people, seeing them come and go, and her walls are up really, really high. […] She decodes some of those themes, because ultimately she can’t move forward with Bubblegum unless she tackles those issues.” During the in depth panel Olson also performed a beautiful brand new song “Monster” which will feature in Adventure Time: Distant Lands Obsidian.
